Upcoming Event: Nature Has Rights

If you’re in or around New York City on Thursday, April 21st, don’t miss the highly anticipated launch event for Wild Law, a new book by Cormac Cullinan.

Just in time for Earth Day, the event is co-sponsored by the Center for Place, Culture and Politics at CUNY Graduate Center, the Brecht Forum, Global Exchange, Council of Canadians, and the Mission of Bolivia to the UN. Featured speakers include Maude Barlow, Shannon Biggs, Cormac Cullinan, Vandana Shiva and Pablo Solón in conversation with moderator David Harvey.

Does a river have a right to flow?  Is nature a commodity, or an entity? International law often recognizes nature as property – to be hoarded and exploited – not as an ecosystem with the right to exist, flourish and regenerate. How do we begin to change non-Indigenous culture and law to recognize the Rights of Mother Earth? The time has come for a new paradigm. Join these distinguished speakers as they present the case for the Rights of Nature. This is a joint launch event for Cormac Cullinan’s book, Wild Law: A Manifesto for Earth Justice, Second Edition, and The Rights of Nature: The Case for a Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth.

The event will be held from 6:30 to 8 pm on April 21st at the CUNY Graduate Center, Proshansky Auditorium, 365 5th Avenue (corner of 34th St.), New York, NY. Download the event poster here.
